Angelo State University has announced that it will not require ACT or SAT scores for freshman applicants for the spring, summer and fall of 2021.
The ASU Office of Admissions implemented test-optional admission reviews for students impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic for the fall 2020 class and will extend this option for the 2021 classes.
ASU is actively working on application review processes, which may include, but are not limited to, the demonstrated academic rigor, leadership, dual credit course completion, college readiness criteria, or any other consideration of applicants, as allowed by state statute, to ensure their success and persistence to graduation.
“We made this decision based on closely monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on our prospective students’ ability to submit currently required national testing scores,” said Sharla Adam, director of admissions. “With the reduction of ACT/SAT tests and the uncertainty associated with those tests being readily available, Angelo State has chosen to provide a test-optional admission opportunity. We will continue to accept ACT/SAT test scores, as well. Students will indicate on their application which admission review they prefer to use.”
More details will be forthcoming on the myfuture.angelo.edu website. Applications are already being accepted for the spring and summer 2021 semesters. Applications for the fall 2021 semester will open Aug. 1.
